2012 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Volkswagen Beetle

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Beetle's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2012 Volkswagen Beetle to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2012 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Beetle might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Volkswagen Beetle.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Volkswagen Beetle? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
